Me - Belly Up Burger (grass-fed burger with cider braised pork belly, apple slaw and roasted onions) w/o bun, served with sweet potato fries and a glass of pinot noir.
Ryan - El Fuego Burger (grass-fed burger with jalapenos, pickled red onions, oaxaca and guacamole) w/o bun, served with sweet potato tater tots and a glass of pinot noir.
- Although all specialty burgers do not automatically come with grass-fed beef patties, the upgrade is only a buck.
- The specialty toppings, read pork belly, are delicious. Overall, the burgers were very good.
- Wine for $6/glass - that's a deal in these parts.
- Sweet potato fries were a disappointment, although utterly delicious, they were heavily coated in some type of breading. I had a few before realizing this and then stopped eating them (although Ryan had no problem polishing them off).
- Sweet potato tater tots were a disappointment, mainly because they just didn't taste very good - kind of like fried balls of sweet potato mush.
- Not so bad, but definitely noticed, was our servers disappointment at our healthy choices - no bun?! none of our amazing craft beers?! grass-fed??
Overall the burgers were awesome, sides - not so much. If I get a hankering for a high class beer and burger while watching a ball game - I might go back.
More than anything, testing out restaurants for paleo options makes me realize we are damn good cooks and I like my cooking more than most restaurants. Must start working on own restaurant plan...
